MOORESVILLE, N.C. – First Brandon Brown partnered with B.J. McLeod Motorsports to drive the No. 78 Chevrolet Camaro SS at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL on Saturday, October 8. Now he welcomes Top Tier Solar Solutions onto his Chevrolet for the Drive for the Cure 250.
The Charlotte, N.C. based company is the latest that Brown has introduced to the NASCAR Xfinity Series for the first time this season. They join Zero FG Energy Drink and CAT Trailer Sales as new NASCAR sponsors that partnered with the Woodbridge, VA native.
“Top Tier Solar Solutions is thrilled to be sponsoring Brandon Brown for this race, and excited to develop a partnership both with Brandon and NASCAR,” said Samuel Van Wynen, Chief Executive Officer of Top Tier Solar Solutions.
“Our company culture is rooted in taking care of our customers and our love for competition, so this partnership is perfect. We wish Brandon the best of luck and can’t wait to see the Top Tier car cross that finish line first.”
In both races that the 29-year-old introduced new partners to NASCAR earlier this year he ran strong. However, factors outside his control meant that the finishes didn’t match the run that Brown had during the race.
“It’s always exciting to welcome a new partner into the world of motorsports, especially when it’s at their hometown racetrack,” said Brown. “I’m thankful to Samuel, Jacob, and everybody at Top Tier Solar Solutions for allowing me the opportunity to represent their company, and I hope to utilize this weekend’s partnership to help them find success – both on and off of the racetrack.”
Brown has three starts at the Charlotte ROVAL with a best finish of 17th in 2019. However, he was inside the top-15 last year on the final lap before he was spun by another competitor.
He then threw the car in reverse, mimicking Will Ferrell in ‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby’ and backed across the line. The spin left Brown in 22nd when he took the checkered flag.
The Drive for the Cure 250 is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, October 8 on NBC. The race will also be broadcast on the Performance Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
